Festival season is finally here and day one of Field Trip was the perfect way to kick it off. The festival took over Fort York Garrison Common and brought the best in music, arts, and food to Toronto.
Harrison and Walrus opened the day as attendees began filing in, ready to dance their hearts out. Overcoats took the main Garrison stage and wowed us with their electro-pop tunes, followed by Joseph’s tight harmonies and stunning vocals. Meanwhile, Royal Canoe brought indie pop with a funky twist to the Fort York stage.
The crowd mellowed out mid-festival to Matt Mays’ bluesy rock vibes. Portugal. The Man started a dance party at the main stage, and A Tribe Called Red kept the energy going with a high-powered DJ set featuring compelling visuals and captivating dancers. Indie rock favourites, Broken Social Scene closed the festival with an unforgettable set featuring one of Sunday’s headliners, Feist, as a guest performer.

I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
